The website uses SSL or TLS encryption to minimise potential security vulnerabilities as much as possible. Please note, however, that internet-based data transfers are prone to security vulnerabilities and absolute protection against third-party access is therefore impossible.
Our website can be used without providing any personal data. Deviating provisions may arise in this respect for the use of individual services of our website; these are explained separately below. The following sections inform you about the nature, scope and purpose of personal data collected, used and processed by the controller.
For technical reasons, data such as the following, which your web browser transmits to us or our web space provider, will be collected (so-called server log files):
- browser type and version
- operating system used
- website from which you are visiting us (referrer URL)
- website you are visiting
- date and time of your access
- your Internet Protocol (IP) address.
This anonymous data will be stored separately from any personal data you may have provided, thereby making it impossible to be traced back to a specific person. The data is used for statistical purposes to assure our internet presence and the security, stability and functionality of the website and to enable optimisation of our offerings.
On our website, we use so-called cookies for recognising repeat use of our website by the same user/internet connection subscriber. Cookies are small text files saved and stored on your computer by your web browser. They are used to optimise our internet presence and our offerings. In most cases, these are so-called “session cookies”, which are deleted at the end of your visit.
However, some of these cookies provide information that will enable us to recognise you automatically. This recognition is based on the IP address stored in the cookies and enables us to optimise our offerings and provide you with easier access to our website. This partly also applies to our partner companies/advertising partners (cookies from third-party providers) that help make the internet presence more interesting. Information on cookies from third-party providers is provided in separate paragraphs below.
You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser accordingly. Please note, however, that if you do so, you may be unable to fully use all features of our website.

If you access our website via a Google advert, Google will place a cookie on your computer. Cookies are small text files saved and stored on your computer by your web browser.

You can prevent the installation of “conversion cookies” by making the appropriate change to your browser settings, for example by setting your browser to deactivate the automatic placement of cookies or by blocking cookies from the domain “googleadservices.com”.
